Tim Curley, 1989- One of the first baseball players to be signed to a professional contract, Tim Curley was a fleet-footed outfielder noted for his speed and strong throwing arm. In three seasons playing for coach Ed Flaherty after transferring to USM from St. Joseph’s College, Curley compiled some outstanding statistics and helped the team make its first appearance in the NCAA III College World Series (1989). Twice an All-New England player, Curley still shakes the school single-season record for triples (6). For his career, he still ranks among the top 20 in at bats, runs scored, doubles, triples, home runs, RBI, and total bases. As a sophomore, he hit a career best .382 with 33 runs scored, nine doubles, eight home runs and 38 RBI. The left-handed hitting Curley made an instant impression on the Huskies’ spring trip when he hit a pair of home runs in the third game of the season against Georgetown University. He followed that season by hitting .374 with 42 runs scored, nine doubles, three triples, two home runs, and 39 RBI. During the Huskies’ first World Series campaign, he hit .292 with 41 runs scored, seven doubles, six triples, two home runs, 26 RBI, and a career-high 27 walks and a .406 on-base percentage. Curley is the president and owner of Curley Associates in Sanford, Maine. He resides in Sanford.
